About Nordic Cloud Strategy 2021 Conference

Cloud technology provides access to great benefits in terms of scalability, security, and flexibility - and enables access to the latest technologies.

But which cloud, architecture, and technological strategy fit your organization best?

For many organizations, a more mixed approach makes more sense, meaning that parts of the company's workload and IT environments are sent to the cloud, while other parts are placed in data centers. At the same time, many organizations use multiple suppliers and technologies to optimize costs and ensure optimal use of available technology.

Schrems II

At the conference we will investigate the consequences of the Schrems II verdict, for companies and organizations. As participant you will get practical advice and guidance on how to avoid the legal pitfalls after Schrems II. Furthermore, you get insights into the different cloud-suppliers’ actions to handle the Schrems II issue.

Demystifying the journey to cloud

Kevin Gerrand, Client CTO, Managed Infrastructure Services and Private Cloud , T-Systems

There was a time when there was still a strong argument not to include cloud within your IT strategy. With rare exception, this is no longer the case.

Customers are demanding rapid and intelligently connected digital services, IT costs are spinning out of control, workloads are reaching capacity and system complexity is unmanageable. Furthermore, the existing infrastructure is becoming vulnerable to security threats and data loss.

The questions now are which cloud to move to, how to get there and yield the benefits of the cloud.

This can be a daunting journey. At T-Systems we have developed a technology agnostic and modular roadmap to safely lead your cloud transformation journey. Our framework embraces your individual starting point to deliver a secure, tailored, and proven journey to public cloud that streamlines your IT landscape and empowering your digital transformation.

Join us and learn how to demystify the journey to cloud.

3 Essential Tips to strengthen your Digital Resilience in a Hybrid/Multi Cloud world

Edwin Weijdema, Global Technologist, Product Strategy , Veeam Software

We all go through the Digital Transformation journey in our own pace. The pandemic however accelerated the journey for most of the organisations, instead of the allotted time in years it was done in months! This was an eye-opener for many and how dependent their core business processes are on digital technology in the event of disruption.

Digital resilience defines your capabilities for survival and forward evolution considering that change is the only constant in a fluid super connected digital environment. Question to ask is: are you actively strengthening resilience for both business processes, existing digital infrastructure and new infrastructure? How does going Hybrid and/or Multi cloud affect your business resilience?

Future of Enterprise IT: Becoming a High Frequency Enterprise

Luc Hennekens, Director of Enterprise Strategy , Amazon Web Services

IT is no longer viewed just as a provider of services, with technology leaders increasingly being called upon to play a central role in the creation of new business value. Yet most enterprise IT organizations are laden with technical debt and are not as agile as they would like to be. The AWS Enterprise Strategy team shares how leaders are using the cloud and effective patterns for IT to move their companies from a low-frequency rate of change to a higher-frequency pace, reducing the risk of change and creating a flywheel for more frequent value delivery.
